Ministry of Supply: The Ultimate Travel & Bike Commute Pants

  I’ve been writing a lot lately about bike commuting. Seriously, it has taken my quality of life up at least five notches. Sadly though, pretty much every pair of pants I own would beg to differ.

6 Things I Love Right Now

  If you happened to catch my previous post, you might have noticed I’ve been going through a little bit of a rough patch lately. Aside from the current political climate, some recent stress at work and chronic health issues kind of piled up on me for a minute there. Of course, writing that out made me feel a lot better and putting it up on the internet for anyone to read (yikes!) made me feel a little more comfortable with talking about personal/not-strictly-beauty-related  ...
